Turn that poster down!
If vibrant colourways and angular shapes just aren't loud enough for your poster requirements, Trapped in Suburbia's new interactive print adds another dimension to the mix: you can play it like an instrument...
Karin Langeveld of Trapped in Suburbia says the studio's Sounds Poster 1.0 is its "first design in a series of 'analogue meets digital' experiments".
Placing one finger on a tab at the bottom of the poster (which presumably initiates a circuit) the user then moves their other hand over the different shapes on the poster to create a series of different sounds – albeit fairly noisy, abstract ones. Performance art, you might say.
The poster will be shown at CO-LAB, an exhibition by 37 students and designers at the Academie Galerie, Utrecht, from May 3 to 25.
